Stylish Givi Motorcycle Top Box Features RFID Key Lock System

Givi motorcycle top box was designed by these industrial designers during their exchange period at Istituto Europeo di Design. This top box project is intended to be used on motorcycles and has to be realistic enough to be released in the market by the year of 2017.

At first, we came up with many ideas that would make this an ambitious target, but during the process we moved toward actual reasonable scenarios and implementing only those features which were likely be available at that time. We had a keen interest to design a product that is sustainable, using biodegradable plastics and making the manufacturing process and recycling process as easy as possible and one of the top box’s main feature and theme is configurability and customizability.

We applied these themes to Givi Motorcycle Top Box both internally and externally, thus the interior has an easy to use compartmentalization feature using elastic rubber bands, while the exterior has customizable rings that can match any motorbike. We decided to use a new lock system with an RFID key to simplify the access to two separate compartments. These compartments have separate purposes, a smaller for easy access for personal things that are essential and a bigger one that has more space. The aggressive angle of the lid was designed to fit with modern and future motorbike trends where the rear end of the bike is also angled, not flat.

E-Board Tracker Bike : A Small, Funny, and Eco Friendly Motorbike

The Eboard Tracker concept doesn’t focus on just a transport vehicle, rather the designer has envisioned it as an eco-friendly, small and funny motorbike that can run at up to 30 mph and ensures better twisting around the corner of the street with its compact and light design. This bike contains hand throttle instead of traditional electric pedaling and features light, simple and optical flowing frame. A beam girder from section-I and hydro-formed tubes welded together in order to strengthen the steering head. The handlebar is shaped like an ace-bar which is fully adjustable and includes a cycle computer on top with speed, battery status and estimated remaining battery capacity readings.

This bike features a very close to “vintage racer” look with its regenerative breaking and a hub battery since they are similar to a set of drum brakes. The chain is swapped for a carbon shaft, bevel drive and nylon hypoid gears enclosed in right swing arm. Behind the pedal shafts, a small six speed cassette type remains hidden and comes operational if the battery becomes flat any time. Both pedals are lockable at 180 degrees and can be used as foot pegs

Urbliner Electric Vehicle for The City of Bogota, Colombia in 2030

Urbliner electric vehicle was born out of the idea of developing transportation solution for college students in the city of Bogota, Colombia in 2030. Based on researches, young students are usually fun, different, extreme, and thrill seekers, they demand vehicle that can meet their lifestyle needs. The main problems we have to face on daily basis are rainy days, objects to load, low speed paths due to ground conditions and the strength to be applied to circumvent the pollution which is exposed by public transport, passenger limit from 1 to 2 people per ride, instability to have two wheels and work on the weight of the occupant, including the low road of the city of Bogota.

This concept vehicle proposes solutions to above problems by having a canopy to protect rider and passenger from the rain. It’s constructed of light alloy and plastic, rider can remove the canopy on a sunny day to enjoy the warmth of the sun. the large side cabin space allows you to load suitcases, papers, folders, etc. without any problem.

nThree Electric Vehicle Offers The Comfort of A Car with The Cost of An E-Bike

nThree electric vehicle aims to provide you with affordable, personal vehicle that features the comfort of a car yet with the cost of an e-bike. It sounds pretty ambitious and interesting, doesn’t it? Let’s read what these designers have to say about the project.

Following the recent electric revolution of lightweight vehicles around the world, the nThree is a new design, following the very successful nCycle e-bike concept. With the irreversible process of global economies turning towards renewable energy, the way we see and use the city has already changed and is set to do so dramatically in the next few years.

With our increased awareness and sensitivity towards energy consumption, courtesy among others of the most recent economic crisis, in the last 4-5 years, personal transportation has begun a slow but steady drift away from the model we have come to know in the past century. The 10s and hundreds of new e-bikes and electric cars like the Renault Twizy or Toyota i-Road have shown the way to a more personal and conscious approach. Our new concept builds on the characteristics and refines the strengths of these vehicles to bring electric power even closer to the mass market.

Small electric cars, tricycles and quadricycles all suffer from the same inherent drawback; they are meant to be cheap and affordable but they end up being expensive like real cars because they are BUILT like real cars. The mission on the nThree was to address these conceptual and design shortcomings and design an affordable, single-seat electric vehicle that would offer all (or most) of the comforts of an electric car at the cost of an e-bike.

To achieve the objectives, the nThree electric vehicle was built with a simplistic approach reminiscent on the nCycle. In first place, the vehicle was reduced to the most essential stable geometry of three wheels to reduce cost. Even though the latest small electrics are a great way to move around the urban areas, there is something about these offerings that does not look great at all: Price. Starting from about 7000 Euros and above these 1-2 seaters cost almost as much as a cheap standard car and more than many used ones in good condition.

P.F.U.V : Futuristic Personal Folding Urban Vehicle Concept for The Year of 2040

Designed for the year 2040 this vehicle solves a mayor problem for every city in the future, space. Only 30% longer than a standard bicycle, P.F.U.V (Personal Folding Urban Vehicle) has the ability of folding itself when not in use for reducing space to a minimum. When folded, this vehicle can be stacked in front of one another for parking.

Most people use a big car for transporting only themselves from point A to B, and cars spend most of the day parked, wasting a lot of space. Utilizing electric motors on each wheel, this vehicle reduces pollution to zero. This is why P.F.U.V transports only one person and folds itself for parking. The chassis is made out of high tech materials, metal ceramics, each hole in the structure is calculated for reducing weight to a maximum without sacrificing the chassis strength.

Tactile Watch Design by Jake Rynkiewicz

Lucky are we to have been blessed with eyes that could spot out things. We can read things hassle-free, admire at nature’s beauty, but the blind? Can they sense things or at least know the current time? Why not! Specially designed for the visually disabled is the new Tactile Watch. So, what’s so intriguing about this watch? The very feeling of raised minute and hour hands with respect to the dots, positioned around the watch face helps the visually disabled to know the current time. Rather than employing a dial, the watch hands are stimulated directly to create a tactile experience. The watchband is made out of flexible rubber material, which makes it even easier for the blind people to take on and off.

This designer got the idea to design watch for visually impaired people when he was researching for his senior thesis project in college. You might think that the blind people search new technologies to restore their sight or a way to navigate the city. In fact, they just want simple things to improve their quality of life. The thesis focused primarily on money recognition for U.S bills and at the same time this industrial designer wanted to expand his research to design a simple product that would appeal a larger user base outside of the visually disabled. He has come up with this Tactile Watch design.

The designer’s primary motto is to design a more user-friendly watch for the blind so that they might have a unique experience as others. While the watch is still at the concept stage, the designer is researching out to incorporate many things for a brilliant outcome.
